Summerfest 2020 Cancelled
As it feels expected, Summerfest has announced that their 2020 festival will not take place, even at the rescheduled dates in place for September of this year. A statement on the Summerfest website reads as follows:
All of us – our staff, vendors, sponsors and partners – are the stewards of the incredible festival experience that fans have come to love and, together, it is our honor to be responsible for this storied tradition. Please know that our team explored countless options to ensure the Summerfest tradition could continue in 2020 in a safe and healthy manner. Yet, given the uncertainty surrounding large gatherings in these unprecedented times, we cannot in good conscience proceed with the festival this year.-Summerfest
With the concern over mass gatherings affecting venues and festivals around the world, as well as the finances and logistics involved this is an understandable move. Refund information from Summerfest for both festival tickets as well as American Family Insurance Amphitheater and BMO Harris Pavillion shows can be found here on the Summerfest website.
We’ll see you next year, Summerfest.
